Ogun State Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, Basorun Muyiwa Oladipo, has declared that the All Progressives Congress (APC) remains the party to beat in the 2019 gubernatorial election in the state.

While declaring his aspiration for the state’s number one seat at the weekend, Oladipo said the Amosun-led administration would use the remainder of its tenure to pacify the marginalised and win the hearts of the masses. “In the next six to nine months, we can still make some difference and that is what is going to happen,” he declared.

The former Speaker of the State House of Assembly, who hails from the Remo area, said that as a former lawmaker and commissioner in two key ministries in the last seven years, he is most qualified for the position.

Reacting on Yewa, a zoning formula in the state, he said: “The constitution doesn’t even allow zoning. Zoning is just a party arrangement and administrative convenience. What matters most is getting somebody that is acceptable to the people, irrespective of where the person comes from.” He nevertheless stressed: “My wife is from Yewa,” adding that his decision to contest is divine.

He promised that as governor, he would focus on agriculture, tourism and environment: He said: “This administration has laid a good foundation. One area that was not touched before we came on board was tourism, which is the future mainstay of the country.

Many countries in the world generate huge income from tourism. So, if we focus on tourism, we would turn around the fortunes of the state, as all the council areas are endowed with potentials.

“Agriculture is another area. The present administration has done a lot. But it cannot do all. Another area is environment. In these three areas, we would empower and enrich people and create jobs. With these, we would positively impact the state.”
